Updated Measures for Course Related Affairs
Due to a rapid escalation in the number of COVID-19 cases, the University is asking all academic and administrative units to comply with the following preventive measures:
- Starting from May 4th, except for the case that courses over 80 students are required to be offered remotely, if one or more student(s) are positive for COVID-19 or identified as close contacts, the instructor of the course can conduct distance teaching until the end of this semester and follow the instructions below.
- Distance teaching can be introduced to general courses, and the final exam can be handled online or in person.
- In principle, experimental and hands-on courses are delivered in in-person format, appropriate social distancing shall be planned and ushered in; instructors and students must wear masks properly in laboratories.
- Course left unmentioned or with specific need, please fill out the application form for the Office of Academic Affairs’ approval. (https://www.space.ntu.edu.tw/navigate/s/
- Instructors can upload their lecture videos to NTU COOL for asynchronous distance learning and online testing; also, U-Meeting is available on NTU COOL, which allows course members to participate in the video conference by real name. As for the alternative to on-site final exam, the University provides mechanisms for conducting online testing, online oral reporting, peer assessment and online drills. Please refer to the attached document for preparation (https://www.space.ntu.edu.tw/navigate/s/

Students can mail to the person and/or unit in charge with application form as attachment.

- Graduate students can take their master’s or Ph.D. thesis/dissertation defense through the video conference. The signature of the committee member can be replaced by an electronic scan. The committee members who use the video method to conduct the master’s or Ph.D. thesis/dissertation defense are allowed to apply for their attendance fee, but not allowed to apply for their travel allowance.

As long as the Master’s and Ph.D. students can complete their thesis/dissertation submission process by August 31, 2022, they will be able to graduate on schedule. If the students are unable to complete the process of submitting their thesis/dissertation by August 31, 2022, they have to pay the tuition and fees for the next semester, and if their maximum period of study has expired, they shall be ordered to be withdrawn from the university.
